About Me:
I am hear to get my life on track. Weight is something I've struggled with as long as I can remember. Married and well into my 20s, my weight cannot simply be chalked up to a fight against social stigma and desire for an asthetically pleasing shape. Today, I fight my weight to stave-off pre-diabetes, lower my blood pressure, and to have a fighting chance at having a baby.

We spent the fall of 2009 doing fertility treatments in hopes of getting pregnant. After 3 unsuccessful (to varying degrees) cycles, my doctor made the decision to hault treatment until I could get in the best shape I could possibly get to. With fertility insurance that has a clear-cut ceiling, the doctor felt we were "spinning wheels" trying to get pregnant now with so many factors working against us. Even if I'm still annovulatory after a significant weight loss, the medications to stimulate egg growth, etc would would a whole lot better if there was - - well, less of me! In addition, risks of miscarriage and high risk pregnancy would significantly decrease.

After a good 2 months in deep depression and another 4 months just getting back to a "normal" that didn't involve sobbing every time I saw a baby or found out a high school friend was "unexpectedly" pregnant... I got my head together and have found the determination I'll need to see me through this fight.

For the first time in my life, I know I will win this battle. I have too much at stake not to.
